Where it all began

Hello there, I’m Jodie, a Bristol based Illustrator and I’m on a mission to make the world more a positive place through Sunshine for Breakfast.

Here’s a snapshot of my creative journey:

  • Studied at Leeds College of Art
  • Graduated in 2011 & fell into a career in marketing & business management.
  • Moved to Bristol and started freelancing in 2014.
  • Launched my first printed greetings cards range in 2016.

Sunshine for Breakfast has grown to include luxury gold foil greetings cards, art prints, postcards and beautiful gifts.

Designs are inspired by mindfulness and creative play, featuring adorable animals, fun patterns and the occasional house plant.

Mental health and positive energy

The idea for Sunshine for Breakfast began after I was struggling with mental health. I found my medicine in making others smile, by creating hand painted greetings cards to send to friends and family as a little surprise snail mail.

I found through brightening someone’s day, sending a positive message and a hug in the post, brought me just as much happiness to send as friends did receiving them. 

I wanted to channel this positive energy and offer a little “Sunshine for Breakfast” whilst people opened their post in the mornings. 

Nature & mindfulness

My designs often feature nature, as I paint with watercolour and gouache (a beautiful in-between of watercolour and acrylic).

I love the feeling of getting lost in the moment and time melting away as I fully embrace the creative play

My designs often feature my own hand lettering, which I create using the iPad and ProCreate.

My words are always carefully selected, to encourage a moment of pause, an extra slow and deep breath, or a moment of calm.

Conscious Creations & Sustainable Business


I care about the planet and creating sustainable business practice is very important to me.

My products are paper goods, which are recycled and/or FSC certified. Everything I produce is designed and printed in small batches in the UK. 

This not only helps me manage stock but means there’s no excess waste, a lower carbon footprint and a happier planet.  

All Sunshine for Breakfast packaging is either biodegradable or easy to recycle.

I don’t print delivery notes or invoices for my website or Etsy customers, as I’d rather save paper and you’ll get a copy of all the same info on email instead.

Honest, practical & ambitious support for small businesses.

With my career background and a decade of small business experience, I also offer coaching to creatives.
